Don't be fooled by the exterior. We thought it was closed down when we visited mid day as from the outside it looks small without external windows, however once you walk through the doors it opens out into a large comfortable dining area. Staff very friendly & we really enjoyed the food.

My wife and I ate here last night and the food was excellent. This restaurant is clean, nicely decorated and spacious. The staff are friendly and attentive and the prices are very reasonable, especially for food of this quality. We love Asian food and the food here is as good as you'll get anywhere. We will definitely be back before... More

Standard menu with a good selection of dishes, service is very good with a warm welcome from staff. The mixed grill was tasty with not to much red colouring.

If you like Kashmiri food and you can get to Blairgowrie, eat here, every day, for ever. If your last meal were Chicken Kathmandi Masala you would die happy. Surma Giant King Prawns are consistently stunning. How DO they DO that? As for the Lamb Achori!! Seriously? Don't get me started.... You may have to wait because the kitchen does... More

Visited Saturday the 22nd April 2017. Had starters of mixed pakora and mixed meat chat, both were fantastic, beautiful flavours and served Ina timely manner. The mains arrived 20 minutes after the starters were cleared, just the right amount of time to whet the appetite for more food! I had special byriany, which was superb highly recommended.

grabbed the takeaway while down in Blairgowrie and it was superb. 2 starters and 2 mains with naans and papadums for less than £30 is decent too

What a surprise to find such a great curry house in Blairgowrie! Two of us enjoyed a fabulous meal here and I only wish I had an Indian restaurant as good as this at home. For a weekday evening they were keeping busy so we're clearly not the only ones who think this. Great food, great service. Well done.

I live overseas but whenever I come back to Blairgowrie I ensure I go to the Sampan. The curries are fantastic. The peshwari nann is the best I've ever had. Good decor, amazing curry, cobra beer, not too costly. Five stars is no brainer. I recommend it to everyone.

Thank Hamish O
